Oftentimes there's a stigma about seeking therapy. People feeling as though if I go to see a therapist, I'm crazy, or I can't handle my own issues. It's exactly the opposite. Think about it. If you broke a bone, you wouldn't think, oh, I have to deal with this on my own. You would go to a doctor. Similarly, if you're feeling depressed or anxious, it's important to go seek the help of a mental health professional. Specifically, there's a stigma against men seeking therapy. Frequently men don't feel comfortable sharing their emotions, and as a result, don't feel comfortable seeking out therapy. It may make them feel weak or vulnerable. It's very important to make sure you take care of yourself just as much as you would if you had broken a bone. If you're feeling depressed for most of the day, nearly every day, go seek the help of a mental health profession.
